Portland, ME. (November 1, 2016) –  Portland-based The Wishcamper Company is going to to be powering it’s newest affordable housing complex with solar energy with it’s first solar energy array in the state.

The array will go on the 3.43-acre Lot 3 in Westbrook Heights Business Park. In a deal that closed Sept. 30, Wishcamper, under the name Icarian Associates LLC, purchased the lot from the city of Westbrook for $150,000. Tony McDonald of the CBRE|The Boulos Company represented the buyer and Greg Hastings of NAI The Dunham Group represented the seller.

The schedule called for ReVision Energy to break ground in October, with completion by the end of the year. The 200-kilowatt array comprises 598 ground-mounted photovoltaic panels and is expected to supply most of the electricity used in Wishcamper’s North School Apartments, a 60-unit complex at 248 Congress St. in Portland, said Wishcamper’s Vice President of Asset Management Jordan Betts.
